Being a member of Brighton Mitre brings huge benefits – over and above the social side and improving yourself as a rider. Joining the club is quick and easy, and membership costs only £20 a year. Your membership is much-appreciated, and helps support and develop the club and the activities it organises.
Brighton Mitre organises and participates in a variety of races throughout the year. From the Hove Park Crits to The Big Dog Race as well as “taster sessions” for novices, there is a race to suit every inclination and level of experience. We are also very lucky in Brighton to have access to the historic Preston Park track, where both road racing and track racing are on offer
Club Rides
The Club has rides throughout the year on Saturday mornings.  These rides are suitable for all and new and prospective members are encouraged to come along and take part. The pace varies according to the route, conditions and the ability of the group. There are now monthly women's rides on the first Sunday of the month.

Brighton Mitre Cycling Club

Brighton Mitre Cycling Club was founded in 1894 in the now-defunct “Mitre” public house in Brighton. Well into our second century, the club is still extremely active and aims to promote all aspects of competitive and leisure cycling (both on- and off-road).

We welcome new members! We cater for all fitness levels and all types of cycling.

Club rides for roadies meet at the Velo cafe in Brighton  at 8.00am for an 8.30am depart on Saturdays. There is a fast-paced, structured training ride for those with racing licences or ambitions to compete, and a more steady and social ride for anyone wishing to take it easy. Both rides are led by club members and aim to be back in Brighton by midday. For more details on the Saturday ride, contact the club. To join The Mitre, click here.

We also organise races in the Surrey League along with the Hove Park Crits which run one a month from April to July.

We also have an evening TT series which is a series of 10 varying time trials including hill climbs and flat and hilly TTs.

Some of our riders also compete at the Preston Park velodrome in the weekly Apres (road) races and the Sussex Track League and for off roader there is the Big Dog mountain bike competition in the autumn.
